The Black List and CBS Studios/NAACP Venture Writers Program
CBS/NAACP Production Venture and the Black List have partnered to offer a WGA-minimum open script deal for a new pilot script with a writer whose work authentically explores the Black experience.
The Black List will assist CBS Studios/NAACP Production Venture in identifying a shortlist of talented writers who exemplify authentic storytelling of Black narratives through a submission period on blcklst.com that begins August 16, 2022 and is open until November 16, 2022 .
The Black List will then use all available data related to script submissions to determine a shortlist to be shared with CBS Studios/NAACP Production Venture. Shortlisted writers may be asked to provide additional materials, such as a professional resume and personal statement, as part of the consideration process.
